In this short talk, Guy Finley reveals the true, practical meaning behind the idea of reincarnation.
The only one who never loses sight of his True Nature, who never becomes a captive of negative states, is that fortunate person who never forgets this one great truth: Even though nothing we look upon in this world belongs to us, everything about our life is a gift.
Some of God’s greatest gifts to us often appear, at first, as though He is taking something away from us.
Whenever we can remember that we would rather smile about what life brings us than suffer over it — that our natural preference is happiness, not hurtfulness — then in such moments of being mindful of what we love most . . . can’t we also strive to remember how much better it is, for everyone, to brighten the life of another rather than to darken it in our forgetfulness?
Nothing can go right for us in any moment gone “wrong” until we awaken, realize, and renew our relationship with the power of a higher set of possibilities.
To know that every moment (regardless of how it comes wrapped) is a gift greater than you can give yourself, is to be well on your way to a life without fear.
